EASTER SUNDAY ON THE BEACH

Going to the beaches on Easter Sunday has traditionally become part of this season. As a matter of fact, Easter Sunday Beach become more popular now than the Easter Egg Hunting. People of all walks of life celebrate this Glorious Sunday with family and friends lounging, swimming and even just walking along the exfoliating sands of the beach.Together with my Dappled Mini Daschund Dog named DAPHNE along with my Mom and cousins, we headed to the GULF VIEW BEACH of Gulf View Executive Homes in Bago Aplaya, Davao City, 10 minute drive from my house.GULF VIEW BEACH is the very typical long stretch gray sand beaches of Davao. But unlike other gray sand beaches of the City, GULF VIEW BEACH is yet tidier than those of Toril and Times Beach. Being situated as part of the Gulf View Executive Homes,(Subdivision), the beach also serves a leisure area for residents residing in the village. But of course, non residents are most welcome providing them plenty of Open Cottages, Function Halls and Small Huts for Overnight Stay and other facilities that can somehow provide necessities and necessary comforts to the beach goers.
Evidently, this photo below shows that inspite of the beaches' simplicity, people do come, enjoy and savor the Easter Celebration with their family and friends.As for me and Daphne, this is just another fun day for a funny photo shoot. So, here we go...

At GULF VIEW BEACH, this typical group of youngters will treat your eyes with their energetic abrobatics performance just for the sake of audience share! Hahaha. It was real fun seeing them enjoying the afternon sun tumbling, dancing and flying at their best.
INDEED, Easter Sunday spent on the Beach, be it in the fabulous white sand beach or the plain gray sand beach, is not just a tradition need to be practiced for its sake but a great time, a very important time to be with family and friends enjoying the so called "Being Together" - just like me, my family and my favorite dog DAPHNE!

I spent my Easter Sunday at home with my tito, tita, and cousin from Manila. We had our sumptuous "pantat" lunch at the Santander's Place located at Los Amigos, Tugbok, Davao City, a 15 minute drive from our home.

Nice Post again!

God bless...

lots of beachcombers. must be the season. sometimes masarap din pumunta sa mataong beach and go people-watching, pero masarap din sa mga virgin/unexplored beaches kasi mas relaxing.

nice doggie.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

Mike
